Stag June 1977
The facts about the changes Triumph made to Stag are very simple: the Stag started being built for public consumption on 13th March 1970 and finished on 29th June 1977. During that time it remained basically the same: the first car had that sleek Michelotti body with 2+2 seating and T-bar and was powered by the unique Triumph-designed 3.0-liter V8 engine, while the last car had that same sleek Michelotti body styling with 2+2 seating and T-bar and was powered by the same 3.0-liter V8 engine.
Stag June 1977
On the 24th June 1977. Hampered by warranty claims both here and in its prime target market of the US the Stag sold poorly. Further sales were lost following the Middle East Oil crisis of 1973/4 following a revolution and the outbreak of the gulf war the Stag was withdrawn from the US market in 1973.
Declining in number across much of Europe, the stag beetle is an impressive species, with the males sporting formidable jaws. Find out more about this beetle in our expert guide by the People's Trust for Endangered Species.
Learn about the stag beetles, including how to identify them from similar species, where they're found in the UK, what they eat, and how you can help them in your garden, in our expert guide by the People's Trust for Endangered Species (PTES).
Whilst there are over a thousand species of stag beetle across the world, we only have three members of the stag beetle family here in the UK; the stag beetle (Lucanus cervus), its smaller relative the lesser stag beetle (Dorcus paralellapipidus) and the rhinoceros beetle (Sinodendron cylindricum). You can see the differences between each type, and with other beetles, on this PDF guide by the PTES.
They may look charismatic, with their large showy jaws, but for most of their life, stag beetles are large white grubs (called larvae), living underground. Often found in tree stumps and in decaying roots, they feed on rotting wood for several years as they grow and develop before finally transforming into an adult beetle.
Stag beetles are completely dependent on dead and decaying wood, so the easiest way to help stag beetles is to have trees and shrubs in your garden, and to keep any stumps if you ever have to remove any.
PTES has collected thousands of records of these beetles via its Great Stag Hunt since it began in 1998. If you spot a stag beetle (either as larva or an adult beetle flying on warm summer evenings), please send your records to PTES.
PTES has been working to save stag beetles for over 20 years, and continues to raise awareness about the importance of dead wood and encouraging people to value old trees which helps stag beetles and other invertebrates.
PTES protects some of our most threatened wildlife species and habitats, and provide practical conservation support through research, grant-aid, educational programmes, wildlife surveys, publications and public events.AdvertisementMain image: Male stag beetle in hand. Aimi MacInnes
The Order of the Sea StagBlazon"Azure, a stag's head cabossed and in base two tridents in saltire argent."Awarded forArmored combat, rapier combatKingdomAtlantiaPresented byKing and Queen of AtlantiaDate createdApril of 1981 (AS 15)
This was formerly an AoA level, polling order. As of April 1, 2003, the Sea Stag became a Grant level polling order, and was expanded to include all martial disciplines, not just heavy weapons. Jacques Martel de Normande, called the Jovial was the first recipient of this award on June 11, 1977, given during the reign of TRH Laeghaire and Ysabeau.
The misuse of public office for private gain is perceived as a serious problem all over the world. A 2020 index published by Transparency International indicates that two-thirds of 180 countries studied scored below 50 on a 100-point scale of perceived corruption. Businesses often pay bribes to government officials because they want access to profitable concessions. Legal measures to curtail public office misuse are often reactive to scandals. Examples include the United States Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, which was adopted after the Lockheed scandal in 1977, and Section 1504 of the U.S. Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which was adopted to curb corporate corruption in 2010. This Section inserts an obligation in the Securities Exchange Act to hold foreign governments, as well as all departments, agencies, instrumentalities, and state-owned companies, accountable when they exploit natural resources.
In the context of anti-corruption disclosures concerning natural resources, countries that host extraction issuers on their stock exchanges are participants in the stag hunt. While stock exchanges in emerging markets are catching up, economically developed countries still attract the bulk of extraction resource issuers to their stock exchanges in the hope of attracting investors from these countries. The London Stock Exchange only allows large mining enterprises with relatively low risk to list, but the London-based Alternative Investment Market lists more junior exploration and development companies. The Toronto Stock Exchange and the Toronto Venture Exchange attract the bulk of extraction issuers nowadays. They list 47%of the public mining companies. This concentration of issuers creates scale advantages, attracting interest from global investors.
However, it is too soon to predict such developments. This Article described that the ongoing stag hunt might still fail. In particular, the U.S. seems to have defected long ago, thus creating little incentive for other participants to make data on government payments easy to find and process for users. Fortunately, the recent creation of the new implementing rules by the SEC, which presents data in a comparatively advanced way, creates an incentive for the other participants to step up their game. In particular, the EEA now needs to develop a single collection point for public corporate information, which would make published information more easily accessible to users. It makes sense to accelerate such alignment efforts now to allow yet-to-be developed regulations in Australia and other countries to catch up and copy the features of the existing regimes. The greater the transparency and due diligence measures adopted in other countries, the greater the resources needed to make national regimes interoperable.
The White Stag family lost a treasured leader among the second generation who inherited the program from our founders. Paul Davis (May 22, 1953-February 25, 2010), one of the first generation of adult leaders who started in the program as a boy, passed away unexpectedly. After joining the program as a candidate, he followed that with many years of service on youth staff and later adult staff. He was one of the first youth participants to become in 1973 a Phase Scoutmaster, in 1977 the Program Director, and in 1983 the President of the White Stag Association.
In 1977, the sign was designated a historic landmark. In 1986 the White Stag company left Oregon, and in 1997 the sign's lettering was changed to advertise a retail store, Made in Oregon, and neon lettering along the bottom was changed from "Sportswear" to "Old Town," indicating the location. The building was purchased by White Stag Block, LLC, managed by Venerable Group, Inc., in 2006.
Garner's character Abel Marsh was later portrayed by Andy Griffith in two made-for television movies, 'The Girl in the Empty Grave (1977)' and 'Deadly Game (1977)', also written by screenwriter Lane Slate.
The company therefore decided it made better economic sense to put as much of the 1977 harvest into Special Reserve. "Allied didn't see the value in Vintage Port," SFE's joint managing director Rupert Symington told Wine Searcher.
But, he added, staff in the Douro kept back some pipes (barrels) for bottling as Vintage. They also registered 1977 with the Port Wine Institute, the regulatory body, which means that it can now be officially released.
Fewer than 1400 bottles of the 1977 will go on the market in September, about 400 of them in the US, Symington said. The price will be set at the same level as premium ports Graham's and Dow's (both Symington brands), around $130.
